6 portions
  • 1/2 kilos spaghetti
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 ounces bacon
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 eggs, big
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • black pepper
  • parsley, minced


Prepare the sauce while you are cooking the pasta so that the pasta is very hot and help to cook the sauce.
Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. add the bacon and cook for about 3 minutes, until the bacon is crispy and releases the fat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
Add the hot drained spaghetti to the pan and mix for 2 minutes to cover the pasta in the fat of the bacon. Beat the eggs and Parmesan cheese in a bowl, stirring well to avoid lumps and add ½ cup of the water in which the pasta was cooked.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the egg mixture to the pasta, beating the eggs quickly until thickened (in doing so out of the fire, avoid the eggs being cooked like scrambled eggs).
Add salt and freshly ground pepper to the pasta and sprinkle parsley.


It is served with extra parmesan cheese on the table.


It is very important that the pasta is hot when you add the egg mixture, so that the heat of the pasta cooks the raw eggs in the sauce.

las instrucciones no son claras. La salsa se hace precisamente con los huevos, el perejil, el queso parmesano, la sal y pimienta. Y ya todo junto se agrega a la pasta
